Viewing posts for the category concurrency
Some people write blog posts on the fine distinctions between the programming jargon of "concurrency" and "parallelism" as if this is very meaningful. But this is all dumb and stupid and inventing a problem out of thin air. What programmers really mean when they say "parallelism" is multicore hardware and what they really mean when they say "concurrency" is multiprocessing (which for nontechies means you can run two different computer programs or processes at the same time.)
I thought I'd repost an interesting post I made on rust lang forums see here.
